First froth found by a consultant with an eye for spit. Interesting creatures, spittlebugs. They whip up a froth of spittle under which they hide as nymphs and feed to their hearts content. Checking first alerts on these bugs, they've been sighted between 4/26 through 5/15 in 10 of the 11 years of alerts sent out. Consistent little spitters but this year is an outlier, for sure.
